Jul 26 Word of the Day
Noun: a friend who is usually only called upon by a friend when a more primary/prominent friend is unavailable.

Taken from the term “second string” in an athletic competition situation. In football, if the star quarterback gets injured during a play, the second string is called off the bench to replace him/her. A “Second String Friend” is essentially benched until needed, if ever.

Synonyms: Plan B, Second Choice, Secondary Friend, Benched Until Needed
I got a call from X the other night. She had an extra ticket to a concert she bought for a friend, but they couldn’t make it so she called me to ask if I wanted to go because I am her Second String Friend.

Whoever think this guy doesn't write good books is f***ing retarted. Patriot Games and Rainbow Six are two of the greatest books of all time, and if you don't think so you probably can't read. Either that or you haven't actually read his books.
Tom Clancy is one of the best authors of all time. He also has awesome movies and video games. Tom Clancy Kicks Ass!

A bestselling author with a slew of novels known for their realism like Rainbow Six.

His only two faults are that 1) He's dead, and 2) he never told Ubisoft to stop making terrible iterations of his novels. He smiles knowing that his novels will remain legendary but occasionally rolls in his grave as E3 shows aspirations of a game based off his books that are NEVER the final product.
The Division is still not worth $60. But Tom Clancy's books are worth more than that, bottom line.

Dog shit novelist extraordinare. All his stories are about terrorist or communists getting their asses whomped by the "free", democratic western countries. Even though his stories are generic and boorish, they do make for mildly entertaining movies (Hunt For Red October), and pretty decent videogames (Splinter Cell, Ghost Recon, Rainbow Six, etc).
Even though his stories are mostly shit. His success is quite high. His obscene crap-to-money ratio amazes us all. So Tom Clancy, for that, I salute you.
In fact. One man (Maddox) proved once and for all that anyone can make a storyline which equals anything Clancy can write. Don't believe me? Just check it out under "Five shitty movies that everybody loves" at www.thebestpageintheuniverse.com, at the bottom of the page is the "Tom Clancy Plot Generator", using this, I have created a plot just as good as anything Tom Clancy could make:..
Communists devise a scheme to take over a generic industrial compound for ransom under the watchful eye of corrupt German officials (played by Americans with fake German accents). The plot twists when the Communists threaten to blow up the White House even after their demands are met. Millions of lives are at stake unless a rookie CIA agent eager to prove his worth can overcome his brooding self-doubt and stop the Communists once and for all. The movie ends with a mildly comical and/or ironic scene in which the Communists blow up or go to prison. Another satisfying tale of political intrigue and personal redemption closes, and we all walk away from this movie a little wiser.

Middling quality thriller novelist who probably does his homework on the research end of things, is full of American jingoism, and avoids including sex scenes in his books because he thinks that makes them more respectable. Has had two middling good movies made of his work, The Hunt for Red October and The Sum of All Fears.
Bernie says she'd rather watch the movies they make of his books than read Tom Clancy's originals.
